For my friends in the IT and technology space, I wanted to clear the myth that problem solving is not only about solving problems which are related specifically to technical and IT systems.
It could be anything, for example: No doubt there are a number of such situations, behaviours and scenarios relevant to you and your world which you would classify as problems that exist and are unsolved.
It is important that you maintain openness to increase your ability to think creatively, thereby finding the most appropriate solution.
No matter how you act, don’t be shy that they are stupid or silly solutions, because no idea is a bad idea.
In my career, I have been very privileged to be in a role in which there is always an abundance of complex situations and problems to be solved, but also positive people looking to solve these problems together.
Many would see this as a curse, but in fact, plenty of research suggests that problems are actually food for the human brain.
To increase your problem-solving skills, do not consider the problem you are having as an insurmountable obstacle.
Just think simply that there is a factor or something that doesn’t work well and you need to find another way.
Try to simplify the problem by looking at the whole picture and eliminating the scraps.
Let’s find a simple, clear solution and you may be surprised at the unexpected results.
